Narrow Firewood Shed Plans

This step by step woodworking project is about narrow firewood shed plans. I have designed this small firewood shed so you can store wood and dry it properly. Moreover, this shed has two levels so you can sort firewood by size. Remember that you need to read the local building codes before selecting the right location for the shed and before building the shed. See my other DIY projects HERE.

We recommend you to invest in the best materials you could afford. Therefore, you should buy weather-resistant lumber, such as pine or cedar. Always take accurate measurements before adjusting the size of the components at the proper size. Drill pilot holes trough the components before inserting the wood screws, to prevent the wood from splitting.

How to build a narrow firewood shed

Building the frames

Building the frames

The first step of the project is to build the floor frame. Cut the components from 2×6 lumber. Drill pilot holes through the rim joists and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the perpendicular components. Take accurate measurements for a neat result.

Assembling the shelter

Assembling the shelter

Next, assemble the frame of the shed by attaching the 4×4 legs. You can adjust the distance from the ground to the bottom frame, according to your needs. Make sure the corners are square and plumb the legs with a spirit level. Drill pilot holes through the frame and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the legs.

Ridge beam support

Ridge beam support

Use 4×4 lumber for the roof supports. Make the notches to the supports so you can fit the horizontal beam. Mark the area and then make multiple parallel cuts with a circular saw. Remove the excess with a chisel and smooth the area with sandpaper.

Horizontal to ridge support

Horizontal to ridge support

Fit the 2×4 supports into place, after centering them with attention. Drill pilot holes and insert 2 1/2″ screws to lock them into place tightly.

Fitting the top ridge supports

Fitting the top ridge supports

Center the supports to the top frame of the shed. Plumb the supports with a spirit level and then make sure the corners are square. Drill pilot holes and insert screws.

Fitting the rafter supports

Fit the 2×4 supports to the roof of the shed. Align the beams with attention, drill pilot holes and insert 2 1/2″ screws to lock them into place tightly.

Building the rafters

Building the rafters

Use 2×4 lumber for the rafters. Mark the cut lines on the boards and then get the job done with a saw.

Fitting the rafters

Fitting the rafters

Fit the rafters to the top of the shed with attention. Place the rafters equally spaced and then lock them into place with 3 1/2″ screws.

Fitting the roofing support slats

Fitting the roofing support slats

Fit the 1×4 slats to the top of the shed, as supports for the roofing. Use 1 5/8″ screws to lock them into place tightly.

Fitting the metal sheets

Fitting the metal sheets

Fit the metal sheets to the roof, so you can seal it.

Last but not least, you need to take care of the finishing touches. Apply a few coats of paint or stain to protect the components from the elements. If you like my project, don’t forget to SHARE it on Facebook and Pinterest.
